Benyamina began his career on youthside with MSV Normannia 08 Berlin. He was later scouted by Hertha BSC. After few years with Hertha BSC, he joined rival 1. FC Union Berlin,[2] where he played twenty three games and scored four goals in the A Jugend Bundesliga Nord/Nordost in the 2008–09 season.[citation needed] He left 1. FC Union Berlin in July 2009 and signed for FC Carl Zeiss Jena.[3] Here played his first professional match in the 3. Liga on 29 July 2009 against SV Sandhausen[4] and scored on 25 October 2009 his first goal against SpVgg Unterhaching.[5] On 14 June 2010, he left FC Carl Zeiss Jena and signed for VfB Stuttgart II.[6] He signed in Stuttgart a three years contract and played first for the 3. Liga team.[7]

On 8 December 2012, Benyamina made his Bundesliga debut for the first team of VfB Stuttgart in a 3–1 home victory against FC Schalke 04.

On 1 July 2013, he moved to Dynamo Dresden.[8] After an unsuccessful half-season, in which Benyamina made only 4 appearances for Dynamo, the club loaned him to 3rd division club Preußen Münster in the winter transfer window.[9] At the end of the season he left Dynamo permanently, signing for SV Wehen Wiesbaden.
